A Grand Plan

May 17th, 2005 | Tags: ,

The more that I write in the log, the more I realize that the only way that entries get written is if I actually sit down and write them. There are many entries that have been started and just not finished. Most of that is due to the grand plans that I lay out and then just never get the chance to complete. Perhaps the more important part is to just get all of the ideas out and make it known and finish the elephant one post at a time.

That being said, [Without a Trace](http://www.cbs.com/primetime/without_a_trace/) is one of the greatest shows on television today. My acknowledgment of this came only recently, but started early in the first season with the episode [In Extremis](http://www.tvtome.com/tvtome/servlet/GuidePageServlet/showid-7449/epid-202623/). After watching this episode of the first season, I swore that I was never going to watch it again. And I didn’t for the rest of that season. (We picked it up again in the summer re-runs doldrums last summer and have continued through till now.)

Why did we go back to watching the show? I realized that I disliked the show for the wrong reason: it was too good. The episode was very powerful ([TV Tome](http://www.tvtome.com/) readers put it in [the top 20% overall](http://www.tvtome.com/tvtome/servlet/DetailsServlet/showid-7449/epid-202623/moduleid-21)) and that scared me. How good does something have to be before you say: “That was just too good”?
